Dear Prudence chord progression:

D D/C D/B D/Bb

MLB Jam chord progression:

A/G D/F# Dm/F A/E

They are in different keys, and the timing is shifted by one bar (although sometimes they play MLB with a different timing, so it's hard to say definitively), and the chords are *slightly* different, but they are, without a doubt, extremely similar.

I think the I - I7 - IV - iv progression is just extremely common throughout rock music (and other genres as well), and both Dear Prudence and MLB are based on that.

Good observation! I never noticed that.
